Structure of the committee
To reflect the diverse nature of Chelsea's support, representatives will be drawn from season ticket holders, match supporter members and rota supporter members as the Club considers it is important to ensure a range of representation.
It is also important for the committee to allow a variety of views to be heard. As a result, committee members will serve a term of two years. No member can be selected for consecutive terms.
Please only put your name forward if there are issues you want to discuss with the Club, as all committee members are expected to make a significant contribution to the discussions. The following seats are vacant on the committee for the upcoming two seasons:

When do the meetings take place? There are usually two meetings per season. During the 2016/2017 season meetings will take place at the stadium on non-match days. Please only put your name forward if you are confident that you will be able to attend both meetings. Who administers the selection process? Chelsea has appointed Electoral Reform Services (ERS), an independent balloting organisation, to administer the selection process.
